Covering the entire hospitality and catering value chain including Catering Equipment Supply, Tableware, Food and Beverage, Bakery & Ice Cream, Coffee & Tea, Wine & Spirits, HOTELEX SHANGHAI 2019 was definitely a great success for the exhibitors and trade buyers in hospitality and foodservice industries around the world. We saw 2,567 exhibitors, 159,267 visitors and 5,502 overseas buyers gathering, networking, sourcing and catching their profits in the four action-packed days. HOTELEX is unique not just for the colorful and fantastic international competitions like Barista Championship, World Bread Contest China Selection, World Pizza Championship China Selections, Pizza and Pasta Arena and Shanghai Pizza Master Competition, but also for the forums which could be the intimate platform for high-level networking and knowledge sharing. Affected by the Covid-19 pandemic this year, we have planned a series of virtual exhibition activities, which are presented online like the high-level webinars, industry forums, competitions and other activities, and launched a new mode of livestream e-commerce. As a famous exhibition organizer in the industry, we always keep pace with the times, take the lead in the industry, and constantly adjust our development strategy.
